I don’t deal with PA men or women, I find it ridiculous and childish. If you want to behave that way than you better not do it around me…I will call you out every time.

I run! Passive aggressive people are hard personalities to deal with and often not even worth trying.

That is a question that requires a heck of a lot more information to be answered properly. Who is the parent of the child? How old is the child?

I’m sure there are loads of books written on this (or similar) subjects.

If it’s just a guy I know that acts that way, I do nothing.. let him be a butt and I’ll be on my way..

If you’re talking about a relationship with your SO.. this is what I did

Darling Husband went through bouts of passive agressive behaviour so I talked with him very early on about it… very straightfoward… that I knew what he was doing, b/c I saw passive aggressive behavior from my dad in my parents marriage and told him that is was not a very functional way to get the problem taken care of or to go away… that all he was doing was prolonging the issue and making himself harder to deal with.

I explained that I saw how passive agressive behavior destroyed my parents marriage and I did NOT want the same…

We talk everything through fine now… even times that I’ve wanted to go into shut down mode Darling Husband won’t let me b/c he knows that it’s only damaging and not helping.

I would really try and talk it through and just explain that behavior patterns like that do nothing but harm a relationship and if he was a long happy relationship then he needs to stop and deal with the issue upfront so it can be taken care of and GO AWAY. lol

@MrsNeutrino: I laughed hard enough to snort from that.

I agree with a PP, are we actually talking about a child, your SO a co-worker, who?

I become very assertive with them. Anytime they do something in a passive manner I call attention to them doing it and I then proceed to ask them exactly what they are getting at. Usually after putting someone on the spot once or twice they stop the aggressive parts of their personality and are just passive around me.

I just act like they’re making a really hilarious joke. It really confuses them.

my guy is a tad passive aggressive,  I have found that I have to be very overly direct to compensate for that behavior trait. Slowly but surely, he is getting better about communicating what he really wants. I try not to judge because I know he doesn’t want to be this way. Gotta love ’em, flaws and all.
